What a cool race experience! Friends of Negwegon State Park’s Beacon to Bay Half Marathon was a huge success this year. The race featured a half marathon, 10k and 5k courses. Depending on the race, runners enjoyed the scenic views of the Lake Huron shoreline from Sturgeon Point Lighthouse in Harrisville to Negwegon State Park in Black River. A grant to Friends of Negwegon State Park provided funds to hold the race and pancake breakfast. Those sand trails look tough!

Last year, these were the top three issues reported by Youth Advisory Council members and the peers they serve across Michigan. While results often vary from region to region, these issues reflect what our own YACs found the last time they did a Youth Needs Assessment in 2018 when they surveyed northeast Michigan youth. YACs locally and statewide use the results of their needs assessments to guide their grantmaking so they can make an impact where it is needed the most. YACs throughout northeast Michigan will be surveying their fellow youth this winter to update their tri-annual assessment for updating grantmaking guidance.

St. John Lutheran School received a grant from the Northeast Michigan Youth Advisory Council for their “Snow Sports” project to provide students of St. John Lutheran School and the Rogers City community ways to discover engaging winter fitness experiences while on the school playground. The grant helped with equipment and storage purchases including snowshoes, snowman making kits, igloo making tools, sleds, shovels, boot and glove dryers, and an outside storage cabinet. Students in Mrs. Langlois’s 6-8 multi-grade classroom incorporated math and sales tax calculations into the project by taking a field trip to Seconds on Third in Rogers City to shop and apply real-life math lessons at the same time.

As parents, grandparents and a community, it is our job to help the young people in our lives grow to be kind, caring, compassionate individuals. Giving Tuesday can be a great way to involve children in meaningful giving that affects their community. So here’s an idea: try providing kids with a “giving allowance” for Giving Tuesday, and then letting them choose which nonprofits they want to support on November 30th It’s a great start in learning to GIVE! #givingtuesdaynemi #philanthropistsintraining

We are currently recruiting for the fourth session of the Leadership Learning Lab (LLL), which combines adaptive leadership, time management, and a suite of nonprofit and cross-sector capacity-building skills. It also aims to create a network of support for changemakers and invests directly in cross-sector leaders to strengthen their organizations and the communities they serve. A mix of virtual and in-person monthly sessions begin in January 2022. Participating nonprofits will only be required to put forth $150 of the $1,500 cost for participation. The remaining cost is covered through a grant from the Frey Foundation, with additional support from partnering community foundations. For northeast Michigan in particular, that includes the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan, Otsego Community Foundation and Roscommon County Community Foundation. To learn more about the program visit https://www.rotarycharities.org/leadership-learning-lab or contact info@cfnem.org. Potential participants should submit an application by December 1.
